NUTELLA CHEESECAKE BROWNIES — A rich, dense brownie base is topped with a fluffy no-bake Nutella cheesecake in this decadent chocolate dessert that will make everyone think you spent hours in the kitchen.
Where do I even start with these Nutella Cheesecake Brownies? Basically, you’re getting two amazing desserts in one.
First there’s a dense, chewy brownie layer. And that’s topped off with a delicious no-bake Nutella cheesecake layer. Together, they equal a slice of chocolate heaven.
Made this twice now and it’s freaking amazing! Lasts for ages in the fridge too. My husband and I managed to make it last a whole week (I’m not sure how!) Love how easy it is too. ~ Sarah
If you’re wondering, yes, you can make the brownie layer and the Nutella cheesecake layer as two separate desserts.
They are both amazing on their own! But why not have two desserts in one? The best part is, they’re really easy to make.
I mean, it is hard to wait for the cheesecake layer to set so you can eat them, but other than that, this is one of those fabulous desserts that makes everyone think you spent hours in the kitchen.
Just try not to eat the Nutella cheesecake layer while you wait for the brownies to cool!
